    Choose "Remote System | Change Permissions" from the menu bar.
  3. When you do this, a "Change Permissions" dialog box will be opened as shown below.
  4. Select the Read, Write, or Execute options for each group (Owner, Group and Public ) and Press OK.
  5. The pemissions of the file/directory will be changed.


Not all FTP servers support this command. If an FTP server does not support this command, you will see a message "Command not understood" or "Unsupported command" in the status window, when you try to change the permissions.
